ConferencesPractice togetherness: art is almost never made alone
“Dance—the moving body—more than anything in our diverse and complex world unites us in the recognition of our shared fragility and our common human condition. It also points us towards a possibility of a more inclusive world with limitless exchange and understanding of new identities, a world where simply everyone is a dancer.” — Anouk Kruithof
